Facebook notification for "Best Of ..."

I'd love it if you would change the way you announce awards on Facebook. The grammar makes me cringe every time I read it.

You currently say, "My photo just won 6 'Best of the Week' awards on Pixoto.com!", which isn't true, because a single photo didn't win 6 awards, but rather 6 photos each one a single award.

It would be great if you said, "6 of my photos won 'Best of the Week' awards on Pixoto.com!"

Not a high priority, I'm sure. But it's a simple change. (And rather than linking to the "recent" page, linking to the "awards" page might be handy, or better yet, linking a custom page with the 6 awards in question. That way, visitors who follow the link don't have to try to figure out which of my dozens of photos are the ones which won awards.)

Thanks! You're doing great work.

I'd also prefer if the announcement didn't sound like it was coming from me.

I like my friends to know that I have pics that have had some recognition but it sounds a bit boastful the way that it's worded. Maybe along the lines of "Mark's photo won a best of day award" rather than "my photo won a best of day award".

Once again only a little thing but if you could give it some thought it would be appreciated

I second Mark as well, my friends feel like I am boasting again each time a new notification is posted on my time line, I am considering turning it off altogether.
